Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

    My mom and I celebrated her birthday with dinner at Cinque Terre and it was incredible! Mom’s most memorable trip was to Italy back in 2016, and she was so excited to enjoy all of the food and wine available during our meal. Everything was exquisite and our server Mia went above and beyond to make our meal special!

    This incredible restaurant never fails to impress! The atmosphere and vibe are consistenly incredible. Cinque Terre (as well as sister restaurant Barolo) are my tried and trusted locations for special nights out. The food is amazing and incredibly authentic. Every dish brings me back to being in Italy. Tonight I had Pizza, which was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the beef carpaccio and clam appetizer. Thank you Varchetta family! Will be back again ❤️

    Food was served cold, portion of fish was smaller & thinner than the palm of my hand, server was polite but not very warm. She was there to take my order & complete her shift & that was evident. Very disappointed with the entire experience. Would not recommend

    they brought a dish we hadn't ordered. Had to remind them to bring a drink that was ordered and a dish that was ordered. Mussels & clams -- some unopened, so that means you can't eat them. Grilled octopus starter was good, but served room temperature. Iced tea was tasteless (and no sweetener). Two of the 4 of us were not thrilled with their main courses. We were overall unimpressed particularly for the price.

    This was our first restaurant experience since New Year's Eve 2019, when we went to Cinque Terre early in the afternoon, just like now. As then, the pasta dishes were just the right size and showed off amazing flavors from a few plain ingredients. The pasta was cooked just a little past al dente, quite good. A soup of pureed lentils tasted like the forest floor on a fall day, absolutely perfect. The profiteroles and rigatoni desserts were very generously portioned. Espresso was perfect. Service was friendly and efficient, keeping the pace of the meal going without ever rushing us. The prices were maybe a touch higher than pre-pandemic, but very reasonable. For this level of quality, they were really a very good deal, even if the restaurant wouldn't have made a gift of one of the desserts to help us celebrate returning to a brief moment of normal life. Go and eat here. Also, for us who like to have dinner early and avoid crowds, the hour Cinque Terre keeps are excellent; they're open all afternoon with their full menu.

    Food was fabulous as was the wine. Our server, Jessica, was attentive and efficient. We had the beet salad , fettuccine and shrimp and chicken Parmesan. All were outstanding. As we were leaving a huge group of people came in for a party. Obviously we are not the only ones to like this place. Try it!

    Great cocktails and house wine. Salad was horribly overdressed, which was a shame because the salad would otherwise have been great. Ordered lasagna and wild boar rigatoni. They were very good but not the best we've had. Our waiter was very good, but when we complained about the salad, he said he'd take care of it. He didn't. Overall, it was a nice evening but we probably won't go back.

    Always a great experience at Cinque Terre - my wife and I usually go there when we have an "early release" day from work, before our son comes home from school. If you, ask for Andy as your waiter - he's AWESOME!

    The good: The server was excellent. Pleasant and, for the most part, attentive. The Bad: We ordered appetizers (salad) and our main course (ossobuco). The appetizer shows up (Caesar salad) and literally 10 seconds later, my ossobuco shows up. I can't understand why you would plop down my dinner when I just barely touched my appetizer. I called the waiter over and told them that I'm not ready for my main course when I literally just got my appetizer. He apologized for an over-eager kitchen. After our salad (about 15 min later) another waiter returns and puts down the exact same meal they took away 15 minutes ago. An, you guessed it, the ossobuco was ice-cold. This ruined our entire evening out and our experience went from good to bad. If you can't get this right, then I hold little hope for next time. I would say I will not be returning, and you should think twice about dining here.

    Really. Great. Food. We had a great Nebbiolo, the Prosciutto and burrata was a solid starter. Fresh seafood and trout dishes were all perfectly portioned and delicious. The service was great. If I have one critique it’s more about the decor. The blue LED feels out of place - better suited for a Vegas club than a quality restaurant (my personal opinion). It was a great experience Overall and I would highly recommend.

    Outstanding experience from the moment we arrived! We were running a little late for our reservation time and the hostess, server (Jensen), bartender and manager were very understanding and accommodating. The service and ambiance were incredible - professional and personable. The food was excellent too! We enjoyed cocktails, appetizers and dinner before attending a show at Jazz Alley around the corner. Everything was perfect and our overall dining experience exceeded our very high expectations from all of the outstanding recommendations and reviews.
